Now that I’ve learned the significance of red doors on churches I’m on the lookout for more to photograph. The first red door I saw on a church was during a visit to South Windsor Connecticut. Little did I know the second one I would find would be in Nebraska City, Nebraska. The oldest Episcopal church in Nebraska, founded in 1857 has a crimson door.
So what does it mean when you see a red door on a church? What does it represent in the Christian faith? The blood of Christ. As you walk through the door into the house of worship you are cleansed in the blood of Christ. Read about my first encounter below, along with the history of Martin Luther and a very famous door.
